Alston, Herbert L.
The general purpose of the Title IV-C Pilot Program (An Educational Needs Projection Model) is to develop procedures for forecasting the personnel needed by the Houston Independent School District (HISD) for a five-year period in response to current and expected legislation and changing student population. The present report reviews: (1) the apparent student data requirements of Lau vs. Nichols guidelines and Texas Senate Bill 121, (2) current HISD data collection procedures concerning limited-English-speaking-ability (LESA) students, and (3) recommendations for a district policy to meet the apparent data collection requirements for LESA students.
